Cops catch teens trying to rob Western Pines house

News Five was informed this morning just after nine-thirty of a burglary in progress at a home in the Western Pines area of Western Paradise Village, Belize District. We arrived on the scene to find Police speaking with the owners of the home and five young men being held in their pick-up truck. According to information received from police, the minors were attempting to gain entry into the house for the purpose of burglary between nine and nine-thirty; however, they managed to trip off the silent alarm which alerted the home’s owners. Those persons called Police and they arrived to catch the quintet in the act. According to police, this group of teenagers has been spotted “casing” or checking out other residences in the area to burglarize while their owners are at out at work or elsewhere, and a burglary was recently reported in the neighbourhood during a power outage. Police continue their investigations and have detained all five minors for questioning.
